Away attendances.....

The Championship is now 12 games old as we endure the latest international break in the season.

That makes it the perfect time to see who is impressing in terms of travelling supporters.

Leeds United fans always assume they have the best fans especially on social media, but the facts actually say that Aston Villa are leading the way this season.

Twitter account @EFLStats has totted up every club's away following in the second tier up until last weekend's games, with villa taking an average of 2,732 fans with Leeds averaging 2,587 fans so far.

Bristol City have already had a few long trips and midweek matches so that places them further down with an average 1,077 supporters at away matches.

Here's the full list from the 2018/19 season so far.

Championship

1 Aston Villa 2732

2 Leeds United 2587

3 Sheffield Wednesday 2447

4 Stoke City 2190

5 Derby County 2007

6 Nottingham Forest 1946

7 West Brom 1906

8 Sheffield United 1685

9 Bolton Wanderers 1546

10 Norwich City 1511

11 Middlesbrough 1475

12 Blackburn Rovers 1390

13 Wigan Athletic 1333

14 Birmingham City 1246

15 QPR 1099

16 Bristol City 1077

17 Millwall 1059

18 Ipswich Town 1032

19 Reading 897

20 Swansea City 817

Bristol Live having a pop at our attendances

Obviously these idiots are oblivious to the fact that these figures will dramatically change over our next two away fixtures :roll: We are set take 7,500 to Blackburn & around 5,000 to Wigan

No way Villa or any other championship club will come close to those figures

The other point to consider is we've had restricted ticket allocations at every away game apart from Sheff Wed this season

Leeds fans could have filled The Den & the KC Stadiium if we had more than 2,000 tickets allocated

We sold 4,700 tickets in less than half an hour for our Hillsborough clash, similar scramble for tickets for our visits to Blackburn & Wigan too!
